I didn't need to be tried, convicted, and sentenced, at a trial I didn't even know was happening, with a so-called friend as the judge and the jury.

So much would be different, right now, if that trial had never happened. Or if I'd had a chance to defend myself.

For one thing, I'd still have my friend.

For another thing, I wouldn't be sitting here with a million questions, none with answers, all striving to distract me.

For another thing, I wouldn't feel like I was cheating myself, by not paying complete attention to what's really important in my life.

I don't need a fucking distraction, but that's what I've got. Even now, sitting in this chair, I find myself distracted. Wondering why.

It must be nice, I think, to be able to flip a switch and turn feelings off. It must be nice, I'm sure, to be able to yank on a chain and watch emotions swirl down a drain. It must be nice, I bet, to be able to close a door and seal yourself off from happy memories of one of the few people who actually gives a shit about you.

I didn't need this shit. And I didn't need you. So why, I wonder, why do I need you now?

The timing is terrible.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
